Wintuk was great

Yesterday Lily and I took the kids to see Wintuk. They were so so about the show until the lights went off and it all started. The girl was mesmerized and could not take her eyes off the stage. The boy less so. After 15 minutes he started fidgeting and had to shift around. Once […]

More RIAA sillynesss

EFF good, RIAA bad. That’s a pretty simple and yet accurate way of looking at things. If this Washington Post article is to be believed, then the RIAA is going after virtually every iPod user. A consumer in Arizona is being sued for making MP3s of music that he legally purchased. Not distributed to other […]

Gurren Lagann is really good

Over at Random Curiosity they had a post for The Best of Anime 2007. That web site has some of the best episode descriptions for when I want to catch up on things that I did not have time to see. Best Action went to Gurren Lagann which I thought was odd at the time. […]

MG Nemo and HG Insurgent Ginn

Here are the two Gunpla models I recently finished. The pictures are not that good; I’ll blame the camera instead of my shaky hands. The first one was a HG Ginn Type Insurgent from Stargazer. It’s my daughter’s model. I made a HG Saviour Gundam for my son, so I also made this one for […]

More legal Darwin award recipients?

Looking on Amazon and searching for Steve Jobs and parody comes up with just one hit surprisingly. I don’t usually read parodies since I prefer science fiction but Apple’s lawyers sure tempt me. Anyone who can’t figure out that FSJ blog is, well, fake probably subscribes to those supermarket tabloids. The one’s that say JFK, […]

Gundam 00 Episode 11

Turns out Allelujah Haptism is not a Newtype (if that even turns up in the series). This episode revolves around Allelujah dealing with his past. The HRL had taken children and modified them for war. Part of the outcome is that their reflexes are maxed out. The other part seems that some of the children […]

Late Christmas shopping

Last night Lily and I left work early to catch the 5:22 PM train. The plan was to go to Toys R Us and pick up toys for all the kids we know. It went well except we got charged twice for one of the items. Lily always checks the receipts before we leave the […]
